Christian Church Wedding at Alila Diwa, Goa

First wedding shoot of this season commenced with this beautiful wedding in Goa. This couple had the best time of their lives and got married as per two traditions — Church wedding & Indian wedding.The Church Wedding follows in this one! 

The venue for this grand destination wedding was Alila Diwa, Goa. Surrounded by greenery, an infinity pool, this polished hotel has high vaulted ceilings and wooden work throughout, offering a stylish take on a traditional decor.

The bride is a perfect blend of being all classy, beautiful and modest, at the same time. And no wonder, her impeccable choice reflected in every aspect of her wedding. Bride’s sister & her sister-in-law practically never left her side and were her Maids of Honour. Her Bridesmaids were color coordinated in blue. The groom is very shy on the other hand, rather we should say camera-shy. But the story gets different with a few pegs down, as evidently seen. The couple were classmates and have been in a decade long relationship, and they just look adorably cute together!

The Church Wedding happened at Our Lady of Remedios Church, Betalbalim Goa. We love shooting church weddings. Churches are very special and there are certain things about a church wedding, which you wouldn’t get anywhere. The best part is that you can make amazing vows and promises for your new journey totally engulfed in peace and serenity, which we totally evidenced and captured. The groom made a stylish entry in a vintage ford car and left the church with his newly wed bride in the same car and we were all amazed!

The celebrations for the day ended with an after party! There were speeches, karaoke, singing, dancing and rock n roll  in the beautifully decorated lawn in Alila Diwa. Both the families have known each other since a very long time, and there was so much ease and comfort in their interactions. Hats of to an amazing planning and execution! Everything proceeded just as planned, as the functions were simplified by keeping only the key functions. But, before we conclude, wait for the next blog to see their beautiful Indian Wedding in detail.

Mugdha & Ravish : Celebrity Wedding in Mumbai

This is the story where one of the most loved couple of Telly town, took their relationship from reel to real life. TV actors Mugdha Chapekar and Ravish Desai got married on 14th December, 2016 at Flags Avante Garde, Mumbai in a private ceremony attended by family and close friends. We were the official photographers covering the beautiful maharashtrian wedding followed by a reception later in the evening.

Mugdha looked gorgeous in a baby pink chanderi silk saree, followed by a yellow Navvari and gold jewellery. The dapper groom opted for a kurta and silk safa with blue feather before changing into a white sherwani.  The wedding was also covered widely by media and various wedding portals viz. ZoWed, Weddingz.in, Bollywood Shaadi, thebridestory, TimesofIndia, etc. 

All in all, how we loved shooting this celebrity couple who looked stunning, overjoyed and more importantly, so much in love. 

For the Reception, Mugdha wore a stunning golden lehenga while Ravish chose a grand nawabi. Her twirling shots are pure delight to the eyes. The reception also saw the presence of some of the veterans from the film industry. We wish the lovely couple truck loads of happiness for the new journey of their lives! Over to the pictures from their special day.

Aditi & Vikas : Wedding in Mumbai

In our wedding photography career, we have never found any two weddings similar. Its always that the people & the circumstances, which blends in together and makes for a different experience each time. Sometimes, its also about challenges. 

Aditi & Vikas’s wedding in Mumbai was a beautiful affair which lasted for 3 days. The wedding festivities started with the cocktail, mehendi & sangeet and ended with the wedding in north indian style. The bubbly bride Aditi was sporty enough to try out whatever suggestions we had, and it was so much fun to shoot her. However, the major challenge for us was to capture her wedding due to the heavy rains on the day of her wedding on 4 December, 2017. But the show went on despite the rains. As Aditi got ready at MAC studio in Juhu, she kept on taking updates on the rain. The baraat fun didn’t stop with the downpour. A salute to the spirit of bride and groom’s families and all the guests involved. But moreover you have to see how happy the bride was, despite all the arrangements and decoration going haywire. The complete photo-set is below! Checkout!

A lesson to be learnt here – Don’t let adversity come in the way of your joy!

Our second shoot of this wedding season was with Shreyas & Shruti, in Mangalore, Karnataka. We were already smitten by the pristine beaches, greenery, array of coconut trees, temples and churches that Mangalore had to offer. Thereafter, we got to know we were shooting the couple at their gorgeous farmhouse the next day post their wedding. 

Shruti & Shreyas got married as per south-indian rituals at Shreyas’s hometown in Mangalore. The wedding blog is coming in the next installment. What we could not wait, but to share is their beautiful post-wedding shoot at Shreyas’s farmhouse near Mangalore. Shreyas & Shruti moved to their farmhouse just after their wedding. The same farmhouse which Shreyas is very proud of. They were really looking forward to a photoshoot there. When we reached there at 6 am, we were truly mesmerized by the greenery, various plantations and the setting of his idyllic farmhouse. In the pictures, you will see the beauty of the green banana leaves, the sun’s first rays falling on them, tall and narrow supari trees which also yield chemical for paints. Shruti got a first hand glimpse of the farmhouse, which she had heard so much from Shreyas, over the long course of their relationship. And just like us, she was so amazed. All these made for some stunning photographs. 

This is something we had wanted to do since a long time! Thank you Shreyas & Shruti for trusting us and giving this beautiful treat with natural beauty!

Swati & Yash : Wedding in Bangalore

 

Our second outing at our favorite venue, Ganjam Mantap was with Swati & Yash.  The two-day wedding was a beautiful celebration of happy expressions, colours and rituals.  Swati is really expressive, as evidently seen in her getting ready shots, catching up with old friends and relatives and her happiness and smiles being with Yash and starting this new journey!

Also, these days parents are increasingly understanding the value of good photography and are ready to get the best for their children’s wedding. They are leaving no stones unturned in coordinating, right from getting us on-board till the delivery of the pictures. In this case, Swati’s parents got in touch with us for her wedding photography as she works in US and were the single point of contact through the entire process. 

The key highlights of the venue is in the details, which was throughly explored through the pictures including the beautiful ponds, the spiral staircase, doors on the main mantap and the walls painted with mango leaves, surrounded by sheer elegance and bliss.
